Mike’s Music Monday #3

After the Celebrations of last week, I’m afraid I have to be a bit more serious this week as it will be a year since my dad died, aged 94 and a half.  He liked halves, whenever you asked him how long he would be he’d always say “5ft 8½”.  He liked his little jokes.

Anyway, his favourite song was, ironically enough, Take My Breath Away by Berlin.  Released in 1986, it shot to fame as one of the soundtracks in the film Top Gun.  (My dad used to work in the Aircraft Industry, so maybe that’s why he liked it).  It reached no. 1 in Belgium, Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands, the UK and the US.  So, he wasn’t alone in liking this song.
